The original profile is a classic Torus bead but there is a removable slip along the fence that allows it cut something closer to an astragal. It's an amazing example all around.

Massive, Unusual 1 3/4in Double-Iron Nosing Plane.

Excellent 3/4in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This is an exceptionally clean and crisp plane with a perfect iron and very little use. The boxing is dead straight.

Roberts: Tools for the Trades and Crafts.
This is a reprint, with much commentary by the author, of an 18th century pattern book published originally by R. Timmons & Sons. The pages within contain hundreds of standard patterns for hand tools of all trades, but especially woodworking tools. From these patterns we can see that many of the forms of the tools did not change for several centuries, in fact, the same plates that appeared in the 18th century editions of these books were still used well into the late 19th century. The artistry is of an exceptional quality, clearly showing the scale and design of each tool. This, combined with Roberts' excellent commentary, makes it an excellent reference book. It is in excellent condition, printed in 1976, and has only light wear to the dustjacket.

3/4in Square Reverse Ogee Molding Plane.
This molding plane was made by R Carter, Troy, NY. Carter worked as a plane maker for almost thirty years from 1833-62. The plane has been used a lot and the mouth is open wide from wear, but it's still usable. Probably not the best choice for difficult wood with the mouth this big but the blade is clean and the plane is pretty clean overall.

Interesting, Early Socket Gouge.
This gouge was made by Horton & Arnold, am edge tool manufacturer working in New York from 1853-1865 according to the EAIA DAT. The gouge is 1 1/2in wide, incannell, and a massive 17in long. The socket is slightly cranked like a slick's would be, which elevates the handle, and the user's hand, above the work. It has the look of a hand-forged edge tool to me- definitely mass-produced. The back is amazingly clean and free of pitting. The handle may not be original but fits well and has little wear at the receiving end. It's an interesting, early American edge tool that looks completely usable to me.
